Carnelian and Copper


About this design:

The center wire piece has been hanging around for so long I don't have a clue as to when I made it. Off and on I have tried different stones with it but they just didn't work. So this time I tried carnelian and it looked better than any of the others. I really like the light and airy look.

Components:

copper wire, copper chain, carnelian

    Both the copper and carnelian have warm tones so they look perfect together. Very nice.

    The copper necklace would have looked wonderful without the carnelian, but together they are so beautiful, Nancy! Wonderful idea! :D

    Nicely done, Nancy! Isn’t it great when serendipity happens! :-D

    I love your necklace. I just may have to try to copy it for my personal collection. I think I will try sterling silver with turquoise. I’ll upload it if I really do make this; I have so much going on that it may take me awhile to make something for myself!!!

    Thanks for the compliments, Ladies.

    You are so right about serendipity, Mary. It is definitely one of my friends. :D

    I hope you do make a necklace in this style LouKyMom. I think sterling and turquoise would be a fantastic choice.
